Jannik Sinner failed on his run for the Monte Carlo Masters title after facing a disappointing defeat against Stefanos Tsitsipas. Although the Italian managed to keep up with the dominance through the tournament, his defeat silenced the excited crowd. While he made enough efforts to hold the line, an injury landed him in tough times as he appeared to be struggling with pain.

Seemingly, Sinner remained suppressed under the dominance of Tsitsipas, right from the start of the match. The Greek tennis star easily managed to get the first set in his name, although the fans’ favorite managed to get the second set in his name. The third one introduced him to uneasiness, because of which he then raised a call for medical attention.

When the scoreboard marked an even situation of 6-4, 3-6, Sinner was spotted in this struggle. While it was just speculation at first, the 22-year-old soon confirmed the injury scare, slowly finding his way to a chair and asking for assistance. According to the reports, he described the issue as one where he felt something moving in his knee area.

Although Jannik Sinner returned to court after being assured that his injury wouldn’t need rapid treatment, his downfall began in mere moments. Subsequently, it resulted in him giving up the third and the match to his Greek opponents. This defeat not only brought an end to the high hopes of the Italian crowd that rooted for him but also marked another consecutive year of his elimination in the Monte Carlo semi-finals.
